Kansas clinic pushes back on ad ban with petition

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Supporters of a new abortion clinic in Wichita are pushing back after media company Clear Channel rejected radio ads promoting its health care services for women.

Representatives of the South Wind Women's Center plan to deliver a petition Wednesday containing more than 68,000 signatures urging Clear Channel to reconsider last month's decision to pull ads from three of the four stations it operates in the Wichita market.

Clear Channel officials refused to immediately comment on the matter.

South Wind's executive director, Julie Burkhart, is expected to speak at Wednesday's event.

The clinic opened in April in the building once owned by slain abortion provider George Tiller. It offers reproductive health care services, including abortions and subsidized birth control for low-income patients.
